McGill’s Bus Group has selected Omnibus cloud technology to optimise scheduling at its recently acquired Scotland East operation, extending its partnership with EPM Group. McGill’s says it determined the Omnibus cloud scheduling solution provided the optimal operational answers, is more intuitive and allows for scenarios to be produced quickly.

The McGill’s Scotland East bus operation runs four depots at Larbert, Bannockburn, Balfron and Livingston in central Scotland. Colin Napier, Group Operations Director at McGill’s, said: “We need systems which support our aims for growth and profitability. Our extensive assessment firmly concluded the Omnibus cloud scheduling solution provided the most efficient answers first time with impressive speeds and flexibility that could not be matched. Omnibus has a deep understanding of the UK bus market and is a trusted software solutions supplier to McGill’s. Omnibus has worked closely with senior management in bringing the very latest technology to provide operational efficiencies. We look forward to developing our partnership further with the Omnibus team.”

Founder of Omnibus Peter Crichton added: “We are delighted McGill’s selected the Omnibus suite of planning and scheduling solutions and look forward to supporting the McGill’s Scotland East operation. Users at the former operation are experienced users of Omnibus which will make their transition seamless.”
